“Factory Farming Research Regulation––an insider’s perspective” – Lunch Talk by Jim Keen, DVM PhD

November 27, 2018 @ 12:05 pm - 1:15 pm

The industrial (“factory farm”) model of raising animals for food generates legitimate concerns about livestock health and welfare and also harms people and the environment. Land grant university & USDA research is the mother of most industrial agricultural practices.
This case study will recount a well-publicized 2015 exposé of animal abuse at the largest livestock research center in the world – the US Meat Animal Research Center (MARC) in Nebraska. The presenter is intimately familiar with MARC having worked there as a veterinarian and researcher for 26 years.
